Land

 

On the right klezmer medley, baby.  

Nature's not a thing but ecology is real.

Horah around the shack cuz it's almost shabbat

in the southern hemisphere.  

Shark siren at the beach blasts

like the shofar or the shabbat siren.  

Let’s diaspora in bikinis, girl!

Material For Granny in a Comic Book

  

Now, now, nothing forced is ever good!

No sense zipping a dress that’s too small --

No such constraints do I approve of in girlhood,

Just denying each arrival of “should”!

Stale promises are pitfalls,

All commitments forced rotten wood!

Girls should always do as they would!
